Carefully decorated, this Argentinian unique style did not get me at first, but as soon as I had the fillet wow!! :) It was excellent! Very soft and juicy. Seasoning was perfect. We asked for a mushroom sauce, great deal. Definitely recommend!

Welcoming staff. Got 200 g of steak with pepper sauce and onion rings for around 22 Euros. It has a nice ambience though.

Two 10oz sirloins medium rare came back over done. Tasted ok. Fries were good. Onion rings ok. Salad was nice. Pepper sauce was good. Two beers and an €80 bill. Ok when ravenous.

The restaurant itself is very nice but I would not consider it a proper steakhouse. Portions were really small, especially the starters. The steak was ok but in my opinion it did not worth the money.

Even as a cheap restaurant this was a disappointment. The so-called rib-eye was thin, gristly, tasteless and luke-warm. My partner's chicken wing entree, on the other hand, was amazing. Beautifully seasoned and cooked. Other staff on site seemed a lot nicer than the grumpy fellow we scored as a waiter. So didn't tip. Made me feel mean, but, the hell... More

Pushy waiters, food very nice but not worth the money, reminds me of Aberdeen Angus restaurants in London, bloody everywhere, tourist traps. Can't believe 120 euro for steak x 2, 2 potatoes a salad bowl of onion ring and a bottle of vino cost this much. Worst but was the waiter asking for a tip to be added onto payment,... More

I've been to la pampa restaurants all over Europe and this has got to be the worst! Rushed, bad service. The value for money was very very poor. A 6oz ribeye is €22 and this doesnt even include chips to with it! Thats literally all you got. Paid €12 for a starter which i wanted for a main and was... More

Their are lots of steakhouses in Amsterdam but this one was superb. Great decor, welcoming staff, reasonable prices and great food. Haven't had a Quilmes beer for ages :). Would recommend.

The meat is quite decent, I had the combo of sirloin with fillet. Tbh the price was okay, cheaper than outside. There is a hidden fee not sure what that is?!

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
